The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 13th December 2021 – 3 Weeks To Go!

With three weeks to go until The January Challenge 2022, let’s explore the three themed programmes you can choose from! 

Each programme is full of brilliant ideas, and is designed to take you on a creative journey…


We are Human – 31 challenges to explore the senses, the natural world and what makes us human.

We are Culture – 31 challenges to explore our identities, cultures and communities. 

We are Connected – 31 challenges to explore what happens when we create together.


Where will January take you? 


To get us thinking about what January might hold and where it could take us, this week we invite you to explore one of the themes you are drawn to! 



Choose one word, ‘Human, Culture or Connected’

Take a few minutes to think about what that word evokes for you? What immediately comes to mind?  Does it bring up a particular emotion or memory? Now get creative! You could write a word cloud of all the things that you associate with the word or write an acrostic poem. You could find an object in the room that relates to your word and create something with it, a drawing or story.




Do you think different words or feelings would come up for you at a different point in time? Why not try the prompt again later in the week and see if or how your experiences through the week change your perspective on your chosen word. 



Share your responses with friends, family colleagues! 

Share your responses online with the hashtags #64MillionArtists #TheJanuaryChallenge.
